Stimulus Registration-Direct Deposit

Does anyone know where you can enter your direct deposit information when you are trying to register for the Stimulus? I enter all of the information, and get to where it says click register, but there wasn't anywhere for me to enter the direct deposit information. Thanks!

We are still waiting for IRS guidance regarding updating or providing direct deposit information. We will have more information once the government finalizes the details.

In the meantime, you can visit the following links for the most recent updates:

According to IRS.gov TurboTax is supposed to have portal active for taking direct deposit banking account information. IRS.gov is warning consumers to stay away from scammers claiming to be that portal. So why is TurboTax waiting for further IRS guidance?!?!? Feels like a dog chasing tail.

If you are not filing a 2019 tax return and you are not required to file a tax return and you do not receive Social Security benefits, then use this TurboTax website to register for the stimulus - https://turbotax.intuit.com/stimulus-check/

What if you already filed your 2019 taxes but did not provide your direct deposit information. Is there a way you can go back and do it so that you will get your stimulus check depositing into your checking account?

I was NOT filing 2019 taxes, I am not required to file a tax return, and I DO NOT receive social security benefits, so I followed that link you gave.   I followed all the menus that TurboTax programmed, answering all the pertinent questions.  Even put in my banking information, as requested.  A screen came up stating my Direct Deposit was the same information I input.  I then acknowledged that it was ready to transmit to the IRS.  Then TurboTax transmitted.  Afterwards it said to print my transmission, only to find a 1040 for 2019 had been transmitted for ZERO dollars, and the banking section of the refund part of the 1040 had XXXXXXXX's in each of the Banking fields.  That tells me that no banking information had been sent to the IRS.  THE WHOLE reason for TurboTax offering the stimulus registration was to get the banking information to the IRS.  So why is it that turboTax programmers put XXXXXXXX's into the banking fields, instead of the correct information the end user had supplied you with?  Did the banking information get transmitted, or not?

@AuroraDewd The bank routing and account numbers are X'd out for security reasons on the printed form.  Your information was e-filed to the IRS.

If you have filed your 2018 or 2019 tax return, or are receiving Social Security Benefits, you do not need to do a thing as the IRS already has your information.

 

If this is not the case, to register for your Stimulus Payment, please use this link for your Stimulus Registration.  When you are on this web page, scroll toward the bottom and select, If you don't need to file your taxes this year.
